The drawing can be cleaned well, removing smudges, dust, or eraser fragments. To notice if there are any tiny fragments on your paper or drawing, you should look at the occur densely from a terrible angle, so that you can notice them contrasting from the paper`s draw near as they rise up. You can use a brush or compressed air to remove the fragments from the framing material.
Utilisation acid- complimentary materials, Any matting, tape measure or adhesive, barriers, or backing that you utilisation in the framing of your artistry or drawing should be entirely acid free. Acidic materials, after long times of time may actually damage the artwork in the frame by distorting the definite paper or by turning the paper a yellowish color.
Let your artwork breathe, In attaching the drawing to the backing or whatever secures its predicament within the mats or frame, it can only be secured at the top and allowed to hang if an adhesive or tape is used. It must not be secured gravely at all four corners or around its perimeter, because the humidity changes chronically and the paper has to have freedom to flex, expand, and contract. Otherwise, the paper will ripple or develop arrangements if it is confined in any mode sets in the paper become very apparent when the lighting is directional or at an angle to the framed piece of art. The light causes highlight and shadow because of the contours in the paper. Some framers are using a large plastic photo type corner that allows the paper to slide in and be secure at all four corners and still allow for the flexing of the paper. It seems to be working quite well, as several of my drawings and illustrations using other media on paper, have been framed this routine for a number of years.
Use matting, I prefer using mats with the framing of my drawings. If an acidic matting is use, it must be backed by an acid-free material that will act as a protective barrier between the matting and the drawing. There is a standard thickness that is necessary and favorite in the industry for this buffer or barrier. The same deliberation can be given to the backing of your drawing. If your drawing or art is backed or mounted on an acid-free material, the barrier is avoidable . Some framers use a foam-core board for backing.
Add a protective dust cover, After attaching the art and framing materials to the actual frame, a dust cover can be used on the back to keep additional dust, spiders, or bugs from entering the framed picture compartment. This is usually done by using a two-sided tape on the back proceed of the molding all the roadway around the perimeter. Then a piece of brown paper is laid down on the adhesive crop up as it is came as far as flat as you press it onto the adhesive transpire . You then trim the outer edges of the brown paper to fit and then you are ready to attach your hanging wire, before placing your artwork on display.
Always ensnare with glass, I would always form with glass, but I would also spend the duplicate money for the UV safety glass. However, I would never use non-glare glass or plexiglas.
Stay away from black, As a general rule, I always stay away from black, especially solid black-although, it can work if is part of a color scheme with a particular molding and if it is not overpowering the drawing. It`s good to have something that has a range of values-including molding and mats, working as a set. Even with the values and gradations created within the graphite media, the mat or mats and the frame may all be selected to either compliment, subdue, or emphasize any particular value or aspect of your drawing.
It`s how your completed artwork is presented that makes all the difference. Although it`s tantalizing to just place your drawing in a ready-made frame, there are a few things that you can take in deliberation before framing your artwork to insure it is adequately safeguarded over the years.
The glass should be wonderfully clean and should be tested for finger prints, dust, hair, or other foreign material, before securing it lastingly in the frame. You can have to do this more than once.

stippling – Stippling involves placing lots of tiny dots on your paper. The dots can be close together, far apart, or anywhere in between! Practice stippling by drawing dots that are close together and also by drawing dots that have more distance between them. Also, notice the difference between dots made when the pencil is sharp vs. when the pencil point is dull. Stippling is a great way to add some interesting texture to a drawing.
For this colored pencil instruction, I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils (this links to Blick Art Materials, and if you make a purchase I get a small commission that helps support this site). These are my favorite brand of colored pencils because they are waxy and full of pigment. This allows them to create color that is so rich and luscious that your drawings actually resemble paintings! All of the drawings that you see on the right and left hand side of this page were created using Prismacolors.
